FAQs – Home Backup Generator Installation

1. What size generator do I need?

Determining the right size generator for your home is crucial to meet your power needs during an outage. At Sustainable Energy Group (SEG), our expert team conducts a thorough assessment of your electrical usage, considering the appliances and systems you want to back up. This assessment helps us recommend the optimal generator size that ensures your essential devices keep running smoothly during emergencies.

Here are some examples of typical generator sizes and the devices they can power in an average home:

  • 6-8kW Generator: This size is suitable for basic power needs, such as essential lighting, refrigerator, sump pump, and a few smaller appliances. It can keep your home running with limited electrical usage during an outage for several hours.

  • 10-16kW Generator: A step up from the smaller generator, this size can power more critical devices, including lighting, refrigerator, freezer, sump pump, HVAC system, water heater, and essential electronics. It offers greater comfort and convenience during extended outages and can run for several hours.

  • 20-22kW Generator: This size is ideal for larger homes with higher power demands. It can power all the essential devices mentioned earlier and provides additional capacity to run larger appliances like washing machines, well pumps, and home office equipment. It can run for an extended period, ensuring your home remains powered for a more extended outage.

  • Whole-House Generator (25kW and above): For comprehensive coverage, a whole-house generator is recommended. With 25kW or higher capacity, it can power all electrical systems in your home, including heating and cooling systems, kitchen appliances, entertainment centers, and more. It can provide power for an extended duration, ensuring your home functions normally during prolonged outages.

Keep in mind that the runtime of a generator is affected by factors such as fuel capacity and the load it is supporting. Our expert team at SEG will consider all these factors while recommending the ideal generator size that meets your unique power needs and how long you require backup power during outages. Having the right-sized generator ensures that your home remains comfortable and functional, even when the unexpected occurs.
